Monday, April 17: Flames broadcasters caught trashing Dougie Hamilton

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while hoping that everybody enjoys and appreciates their Marathon Monday.

*Apparently, Dougie Hamilton took some friendly fire from the broadcasting booth after taking some bad penalties vs. the Ducks. How on earth does this happen?

*One of the best stories of the Stanley Cup playoffs is Clarke MacArthur coming back from serious concussion issues and helping lead Ottawa to a win in Game 2.

*The Minnesota Wild has seen their offense go south at the worst possible time in the playoffs, and we’ve seen this with Bruce Boudreau before.

*The Red Wings' demise is not a simple story, and there are plenty of reasons why things fell apart for them in their first playoff miss in 25 years.

*The Tampa Bay Lightning are going to be facing some serious salary cap issues with a number of their free agents this summer, and they may not be able to stay.

*There’s no alibi for the New York Rangers stinking on home ice against the Habs in the latest MSG meltdown.

 

*Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn heads the most disappointing list of players from the 2016-17 regular season, and that makes sense given the terrible season Dallas had on the ice.

*For something completely different: Nice piece from Ron Borges on a refugee running for the Red Cross in today’s Boston Marathon.
